View the full version (in russian): [solved]problem with opening the disk image to VMware Workstation 8:... Win2003. vmdk line 1: Syntax error

2012-08-16 19:21:02

Can not open a virtual machine VMware Workstation disk image of a single program. Writes an error: "... Win2003. Vmdk line 1: Syntax error."

I have a suspicion that the program has been installed in this virtualke and removed. Somewhere record remained possible that does not give make a fresh install. I tried to remove itself VMware, that would re-install it and open a disk image. But VMware is also not completely removed. Need a place to clean the code, I do not know exactly where.

Please help essence of the problem: "... Win2003. Vmdk line 1: Syntax error.". Or, as a second option, tell me how to remove without residue VMware Workstation from the computer. I windose 7.

Thank you!

open the file to the machine configuration. it is small, close to the virtual disk file.

Try a new car without Wirth and attach the HDD to her existing vmdk.

I would create a new virtual machine, but I can not delete the old one.

VMware Workstation can not create more than one machine Wirth? GS Well put VirtualBox, it is also able to work with vmdk-files

2012-08-18 23:40:20
configuration feels good. make another car like yosemitywrote.

Everything works. I'm just not in the way that file open. I tried to open vmdk. and it was necessary to open the vmc. Sorry for the trouble and thank you for your help. It is difficult to live without a brain.
